Would anyone have any suggestions as to where a fella and his lovely wife might go for an evening of Salsa dancing, OTHER than Mambo Jambo (WAY too crowded, unless you want to dance in the hallway out by the stairs), not necessarily for pro-dancers (well, she is, I'm not...) but someplace nice and lively. It doesn't have to be downtown, actually I think we'd prefer not downtown.
Any input and ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Cold here in Toronto? Damn right. But it is slowly getting better.
free lessons every wed. ngt at BUGALOE BAR on Depalm pier, Fri. ngt at pam pam rest. is salsa night with professional dancers, pam-pam is located a little distance behind and past Madamme Jeanettes. A good place to dance salsa or watch (like I do) is Fri and Sat. ngts at Mr. Jazz at new mall, large dance floor and live ten piece band. took lessons in the past from Mr. Salsa? who runs the Wed. lesson at Bugaloe writes posts on this site and could provide more details.
Thanks for your questions about salsa dancing in Aruba.
There are different places you could go to in Aruba for salsa dancing.
Here are some nice places that I recommend.
- Every Wednesday from 7-10pm, Salsa night at Bugaloe Beach Bar (Palm Pier) with a free salsa & merengue workshop from ArubaSalsa. (live band)
- Every Wednesday from 11pm-2am: Mambo Jambo, downtown Oranjestad. (live band) You could go from 11 till 1, since it's not so crowded at that time. It gets crowded when Senor Frogs closes at 1 and everyone then goes to Mambo Jambo.
- Friday and Saturday night from 11 till 3: Mr Jazz at the paseo herencia mall (in front of the holiday inn)
Dress nice to get in. (live band, one of the best on the island)
- Friday and Saturday night from 11 till 2: Tropical cafe at the seaport marketplace, downtown (live band)
- Sunday night from 6 to 9:30 at Bugaloe, (live band) Not always salsa.
We (ArubaSalsa) are present at most of these dance nights. For more info on dance locations, dance lessons (private or group) go to www.ArubaSalsa.com/locals
We hope to see you around.
Some advice: bring a small towel, salsa dancing in Aruba is HOT!
